Tie bar quality pair of men's shoes
Invest in at least one well-tailored, medium-weight, single-breasted suit in black, navy, or gray; splurge on a few if you wear a suit to work. Choose a classic cut that won't go out of style, and have it professionally fitted and no polyester, please!
Get some timeless tops: a couple of crisp, white, button-down collar shirts; a few classic polos; and at least one solid-color cashmere V-neck sweater and always have a week's worth of clean white crewneck T-shirts.
Keep up with tie trends so your classic suit doesn't look dated. Invest in a seven-fold tie for days when you want to look really sharp, and always have at least one well-made, solid-colored silk tie in the current style. If you wear a metal watch, keep your neckwear in place with a matching tie bar.
Have a pair of black leather lace-up shoes, a pair of brown loafers, and a good leather belt to match each. Belts should be two to three fingers wide. A quality pair of men's shoes can be re-soled several times, making them a good investment.
Follow the rule of seven for pants: blue jeans, gabardine, worsted wool, cavalry twill, flannel, linen, and tweed pants should be in your closet.
Buy a well-made sports coat or blazer; it can be dressed up with pants or dressed down with jeans. Also, invest in a classic trench coat and a wool or black cashmere overcoat for more formal occasions.
Wear your clothes with confidence -- it's your most important accessory.
